“And bring to witness two witnesses from among your men. And if there are not two men [available], then a man and two women from those whom you accept as witnesses – so that if one of the women errs, then the other can remind her.”
(Surah Al-Baqareh, v.282)
The scientists have concluded that the women’s short term memory is more powerful than that in men’s but vice versa for long-term memory. By this reason, the issue of women’s testimony as a half becomes more comprehensive.
